Our attorneys closely examine each case to determine how truck driver errors and trucking company errors have contributed to the cause of an accident and the injuries sustained by accident victims.
Trucking laws and regulations have been created with the understanding that large commercial trucks have the capacity to cause serious injury or death. Accordingly, truckers must have a commercial driver’s license and are expected to act with a high level of care. Truck companies are expected to enact appropriate safety measures to provide proper training, guidance, and oversight for their drivers.
